Rococo is about beauty and balance and placement of furniture in a fuctional way.\
its the first to blend a sort of comfort with beauty and functionality.

Yes Comte is right. Rococo derives from neoclassical style and baroque style, rococo is a lighter relative of Baroque.

I like rococo because beauty and splendor, lovely decorations and elegancy :angel5: . However sometimes I feel like it can be too much.

Here is something about rococo from Wikipedia:

Rococo

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rococo is a style of 18th century French art and interior design. Rococo style rooms were designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and tapestry complementing architecture, reliefs, and wall paintings. It was largely supplanted by the Neoclassic style.
The word Rococo is seen as a combination of the French rocaille, or shell, and the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. Due to Rococo love of shell-like curves and focus on decorative arts, some critics used the term to derogatively imply that the style was frivolous or merely fashion; interestingly, when the term was first used in English in about 1836, it was a colloquialism meaning "old-fashioned". However, since the mid 19th century, the term has been accepted by art historians. While there is still some debate about the historical significance of the style to art in general, Rococo is now widely recognized as a major period in the development of European art.

i did not mean to be rude versailles, but i just find it a tad bit annoying when people make statements in which they have no clue to the subject matter.
let us look at some more 18th century rooms.

Oh. Sorry! I've forgot to see you're welcome. You're welcome Comte. Yes Versailles,perhaps you could think of Rococo as this: Baroque and Rococo are sisters. Baroque is the darker more brooding sister. Rococo is the lighter, and more reflective sister, the amount of light gives the illusion that the room is larger than it truly is.

I would have to say Rococo is lighter and a bit more sleek than Baroque that just being my humble opinion.
